On the first day of your weekend in Laval, in the department of Mayenne, visit the chateau, which is divided into two parts: the 12th-century Château Vieux, with its dungeon and underground chapel, and the 16th-century Château Neuf. After a night spent in a room at one of our Campanile Laval hotel-restaurants, visit the city’s historic center. Take a detour down its narrow streets and admire the wood-framed houses and the 50 or so little niches, which once housed statuettes that were entreated to rid one of bad luck or heal a disease.
Campanile hotels in Laval are ideally located for exploring the city and its surroundings during a week-long stay. Visit the chateau, a testament to the city's rich medieval past, and the museum of naive art, where works by Douanier Rousseau and Lucien Le Guern are on display. Stop by the Hôtel de Ville as well, which houses a small collection of paintings and sculptures. While staying in the department of La Mayenne, visit the Notre-Dame d'Avesnières basilica and the Saint-Trinité cathedral. Last, don't miss the ruins of the enclosure wall, which at one time served as protection for Laval.
Are you planning a family stay in the department of La Mayenne at our Campanile hotels in Laval? Take a stroll through the city's medieval ruins, visit its chateau and wander through its old, narrow streets. For a nature break, don't miss the area's various gardens and woods or the Grande Lande equestrian park. You can also visit Aquabulle, Laval's water park, or rent a boat. If you don’t have time for that, consider a visit to the Musée des Sciences or the well-preserved Gallo-Roman thermal baths in Entrammes.
